Coach's outlook: "We've been at 7-7 for the past four years, and I think this team will be disappointed if wecan't get over that hump and have a winning season. Defensively, I'mpretty confident that our top players are coming together. Offensively, however, I have my concerns. We don't have that automatic scorer,so we'll have to emphasize the team concept and not rely on any one player. We have solid skill, but no one dynamite force. But we also have an advantage over the teams in the past because we've got depth in the attack, the midfield and the defense. If someone gets hurt or isn't having a good game, we can go to another player and not lose much (in talent)."

Anne Arundel County Sun's outlook: Buckley has plenty to work with but with Friday's game against North County and another big test against Southern (April 9), his team will have to develop quickly. The Eagles should make good on their quest to break .500 but in order to grab a Class 2A/1A playoff berth. They will need to improve by at least four games.
